President Trump on Tuesday interpreted a tweet from CNN reporter Jim Acosta as a sign that even Acosta, a constant foil of the White House, believes Trump won the shutdown showdown against Democrats.

"Even Crazy Jim Acosta of Fake News CNN agrees: “Trump World and WH sources dancing in end zone: Trump wins again...Schumer and Dems caved...gambled and lost.” Thank you for your honesty Jim!" Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

The comment seemed to be a rare move for Trump, who has criticized CNN's coverage of his administration and campaign for approximately two years.

However, Acosta had tweeted on Monday that his sources were telling him they viewed the conclusion of the shutdown as a victory, and Acosta himself was not calling the move a win for the GOP.

"Trump world and WH sources dancing in end zone: 'Trump wins again... ' Schumer and Dems 'caved... gambled and lost,'" Acosta wrote.
